Jeff Miller Easily Re-elected

November 7, 2012

Republican U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller was easily re-elected Tuesday, defeating little known Democrat Jim Bryan and Libertarian Calen Fretts.

Miller, of Chumuckla, has been the Congressman in the state’s westernmost Panhandle Congressional District 1 since 1998. He serves on the House Armed Services Committee, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.

The race was never expected to be close, with both challengers little known and drawing little financial support.

    Jeff is a huge disappointment. I have looked for authored or coauthored legislation by this man and found none. He is a Republican hack with no original ideas. I will work hard to have this man defeated in his next election.

    It is very shameful & nonsense to have reelected a person with no interest in the Panhandle area. I have spoken with Mr. Miller & he could not answer simple questions regarding plan & vision for our area. Our employment rate is high, we have no solid industry in our area. Mr. Miller strategy is to provide transportation & boarding to our veterans once during 2 years term to Washington & his reelection is assured. A Congressman without vision for Panhandle Area. Public you deserve it.
    Anyone knows what he has done for Panhandle since 1998. I have not affiliation with any party.

    Jim Bryan, the Democrats that ran against him is a Conservative Democrat. I wouldn’t say he is Yellow Dog Dem, because he’s a good guy, very thoughtful and cares about the Folks in District 1.

    As far Miller “easily getting re-elected” Jim has been chipping away and Miller the last few election cycles and I’d say it is getting less easy. Miller has access to deep pockets in real estate and contract construction, not to mention VA vendors now that he is in charge of letting his Conservatism hinder the VA’s ability to function better than it could.

    If Jim Bryan can get access to some real money, we could have a tight race in 2014.

    It’s ashamed they not I keep voting for this guy. He’s a blamer and complainers. Not a brite man. He’s one that doesn’t care about the 47%.

    @ Kathy and Huh,

    That’s funny. When I met him at my place of employment, he asked intelligent questions and seemed to have a mind of his own. The Panhandle is typically Republican. If he is voting the party line, that’s probably because that’s how the majority of who he represents feels.

    Don’t be insulting because your candidates did not win!

    Good luck with that one, he is a nobody from nobody land and follows his party to the tea. He has no mind and no ability to do anything productive. EXCEPT follow the party line.

    I would like to see him do something other than Blame Obama. Take some responsibility.
